Nigerian artist and songwriter, Timi Dakolo, has urged guardians to treat children under their care like their own.
He made this admonition on Instagram, where he insisted that the children may end up supporting these guardians when they grow older.
Read what he wrote below:
"Dear anybody, you see that child or children that are staying with you for one reason or the other. Please treat them well, they may end up being your saving grace and pillar when you get old and life eventually happens to you. Do to them as you would do to your own child. For life has a funny way of telling these kinds of stories."
Some of his followers criticized the post, arguing that expecting a reward should not be the motive for treating a child right.
The father of two lovely girls further noted in another post that his duty to his daughters goes beyond being a mere daddy, as he also acts as their hypeman.
